What’s new on Hulu in May 2019, and what’s leaving soon

Spring is here, but Hulu is still delivering plenty of reasons for TV and movie lovers to stay inside. The streaming site has an impressive list of new offerings this month, from compelling original series to critically acclaimed movies. Here are some of the highlights, as well as a full list of what’s new this month.

On the television side, Hulu will debut its Catch-22 miniseries, as well as a new installment of its monthly horror anthology series Into the Dark. Also coming to Hulu is the complete, remastered Baywatch series, as well as the hilarious mockumentary Borat: Learning of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation Kazakhstan.

Our top picks for May

Into the Dark: All That We Destroy

The eighth installment of the holiday-themed horror anthology series takes on Mother’s Day, and follows a geneticist who fears that her son may be turning into a serial killer. So what does she do? She creates a group of clones in an attempt to cure him of his psychopathic tendencies by allowing him to relive the murder of his first victim, of course. The episode’s cast includes Israel Broussard, Aurora Perrineau, Dora Madison, Frank Whaley, and Samantha Mathis.

Catch-22

This six-episode miniseries brings Joseph Heller’s seminal novel to the screen, with George Clooney, Kyle Chandler, and Grant Heslov directing, producing, and playing on-screen roles in the adaptation. Set during World War II, Catch-22 follows U.S. Air Force bomber pilot John Yossarian, who grapples with the bureaucratic rule indicating that any pilot who fears for his safety during the increasing number of missions they’re required to fly over enemy territory is sane, and therefore unable to get out of flying more missions. Pilots who want to fly more combat missions, however, are deemed insane and eligible to be relieved of duty. Girls actor Christopher Abbott plays Yossarian in the series.

May will also be your last chance to watch some classic comedies, with both Ace Ventura movies and Office Space leaving Hulu, as well as Clint Eastwood westerns A Fistful of Dollars and For a Few Dollars More.

Below is the full list of everything new coming to the streamer in the month of May, and everything going away.
